Who We Are
First Internet Bank (yes, we really were the first FDIC-insured institution to operate entirely online!) began with a moment of insight: Banking could be more. Do more. We saw that an online bank could serve customers across the nation, but without the overhead costs associated with traditional banks.
Our Aha Moment
We started First Internet Bank with the goal of helping customers turn their financial goals into action. You have the inspiration, we have the expertise and the resources to help you make it a reality. We call this “the aha moment” and we want to help you take action on it. Your aha may be a business plan, a dream home, a trip around the world or a secure retirement, but it’s yours. And we’re here to help you make it a reality.
How We Got Here
Nearly 20 years ago, David Becker had a radical notion. He decided to create a bank that lived entirely online (you might say he was onto something there). From its inception at David’s kitchen table, First Internet Bank has been driven by an entrepreneurial spirit.
“Like most start-ups, our early days were challenging. But we built our success — and transformed the banking industry — by staying true to our roots as innovators and trailblazers. Today, we bring the same passion and creativity to every interaction you have with First Internet Bank — we want to empower you to bank on your own ideas.”
